Tool Not Releasing A New Album In 2013, Says Maynard
Bad news for all you Tool fans out there, as the band apparently won't be releasing a new studio album this year. According to frontman Maynard James Keenan, we'll have to wait yet another whole year for the "10.000 Days" follow-up. Despite the various announcements of the new album coming in 2013, the vocalist has shunned all the reports in the latest interview with Radio Futuro, taking away the hope from fans around the world. "No new disc. Not this year... I have not written any songs. So no, there is nothing", said Keenan. Same goes for the new A Perfect Circle release. Apparently, with the vocalist focusing on his work with Puscifer and guitarist Billy Howerdel being busy with Ashes Divide there is simply no time for work on a new album at the moment. However, the singer also has somewhat of a bad reputation for his media pranks and eccentric statements. Back in 2005 he even played an April Fools joke saying that the band will stop working on a new album due to him "finding Jesus". So is he just misleading us or will the fans really have to wait for a total of at least 8 years for a new release? Prior to this statement, the new Tool album was going behind schedule with the latest scooter accidents involving two of the band members additionally slowing down the process. Back in March, drummer Danny Carey has announced that the band will be entering studio somewhere in June of July. What we should definitely be certain about is the new Puscifer EP, "Donkey Punch The Night", coming out on February 19. The current month will also mark the release of Keenan's cover of the classic Queen tune, "Bohemian Rhapsody". So what are your thoughts on this one? Disappointed for having to wait for so long or still hoping he is just pulling our leg?
